The head of Haitis voodoo religion has called on authorities to act after dozens of priest lynchings.
At least 45 male and female voodoo priests have been murdered in recent weeks after being blamed for causing the Caribbean countrys deadly Cholera outbreak. Most of the killings have taken place in the coastal town of Jeremie with victims often being hacked to death with machetes.
Max Beauvoir, the supreme leader of Haitian voodoo, who has criticised police for not doing enough to stop the killings, said:We saw what happened in Jeremie. Certainly, immediately, everyone witnessed some holding machetes, cutting. About 45 people died in their hometown. We think thats horrible and should never be tolerated. Thats why as voodoo practitioners we are rising against that and we will oppose it by any means necessary.
Since emerging in central regions in October some 2500 people have died from Cholera. While some Haitians blame voodoo leaders for spreading the disease with spells and powder, others have accused the UNs Nepalese force of bringing it to Haiti.
Africa all over again.
I wonder if it is truly possible to save these people.
Maybe the government should try “machete control” laws! LOL!!!
The can REGISTER all the machetes, and impose machete waiting periods. Limit purchases to one machete a month! And, no PRIVATE sales at machete shows! LOL!
They are exactly right though. It is definitely their wanton evil practices that cause their problems.
Sounds like they are getting a bit Elijah on the baal worshippers!
Chapter 18, verse 40
And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
Not only do they have African roots but French roots as well..
They may be not only politically suicidal but politically cannibalistic as well..
Where else have we recently heard of lots of folks hacked to death with machetes?
Reality is truly stranger than any fiction.
Who are we to try to impose our values on others?
And we are being asked to donate money (called charity) to this backward, continuous rotting, stinking, crooked, cesspool, hellhole by you know who.
Should she (and I shudder to say this) become our next president, we already know from her visit to Haiti and asking the U.S. public to donate, she will be giving away our tax money, our hard earned money, in the name of charity to these types of countries to make herself and a few other do-gooders feel good.
Look out, Zombies coming next.
I think you are talking about Rev. Franklin Graham, who invited Sarah Palin to go along with him on a trip he had already arranged.
Also, I would distinguished between charity as trying to help people, and maybe even convert them from voodoo to Christianity, as opposed to “charity” as spending taxpayer dollars on filling the slush funds of third-world dictators.
Franklin Graham is not a social justice, big-government kind of guy, as far as I know.
How odd when Leftists impose their values on us but not Iran,Haiti, Darfur etc. But at least the troops will see their pro-homosex Powerpoint training.
